Surrey’s Matthew Jarvis won $1.05 million this weekend as he played his way to an eighth place finish at the World Series Of Poker in Las Vegas.

Jarvis came one card from doubling his stack.

Short on chips, he moved all-in with a pocket pair of nines. His opponent, Michael (The Grinder) Mizrachi, called with an ace and a queen.

Jarvis finished with a full-house (nines and queens), but an ace on the final card gave his opponent the better full house (queens and aces).
